    Wisdom is a deep understanding and realization of people, things, events or situations, resulting in the ability to apply perceptions, judgements and actions in keeping with this understanding. It often requires control of one's emotional reactions (the "passions") so that universal principles, reason and knowledge prevail to determine one's actions. Wisdom is also the comprehension of what is true or right coupled with optimum judgment as to action.

    That quote was from wikipedia. In order to determine how wise one may be you first have to understand what wisdom is. Wisdom is more than knowledge. It is understanding, an extent of knowledge to know something and know all or many things involved with that something. Further it is being able to act or think about it that is separate from how you feel or regarding what something may "seem."

    I can't answer your questions, but if you want to be wise, the first thing you need to do is not consider the relativism of your own wisdom or feelings, but have deep rooted beliefs. Things that you make your decisions concerning, and not just on the moment. Wise people are generally easy to pick out because they are consistent.
